  coal power plant in a residential area
by Leipzig

Fondest memory: Didn't know where to put this information so I decided to present it here.
It was a clear day when we arrived St. Petersburg but we noticed a kind of yellow blanket over the city. This reminded me on the time in the GDR. In winter we often had smog in town. And indeed, it was smog. The air smelled like sulfur. The reason for taht is surely the individual traffic and the power plants which are located in the city centre.
